31 - Black Bart - The Poet Bandit

31 - Black Bart - The Poet Bandit

I've labored long and hard for bread, For honor, and for riches, But on my corns too long you've tread, You fine-haired sons of bitches. These are the words of Black Bart, the gentleman bandit who preferred to leave poems at the scene of the crime...


I've labored long and hard for bread,
For honor, and for riches,
But on my corns too long you've tread,
You fine-haired sons of bitches.

These are the words of Black Bart, the gentleman bandit who preferred to leave poems at the scene of the crime rather than dead bodies. Black Bart wasn’t a killer and he never really hurt anyone, except maybe for Wells Fargo, who’s stagecoaches he robbed at least 28 times over the course of his career. Taking thousands of dollars in the process.

Black Bart would pay for his crimes by doing a stretch in California’s notorious San QUENTIN prison. And upon his release he vanished. Or did he?

Who was the mysterious Black Bart? Where’d he come from? Where did he disappear to? Why did he hate Wells Fargo so much?

True stories from the wild and woolly west. Also really lame jokes! Each episode I discuss a real life person or event from the wild west era (gunfighters, lawmen, outlaws, Native Americans, frontiersmen, etc). I'm neither a historian or comedian, but I do try to be as accurate as possible whilst dispensing dad jokes and mispronunciations.
